in reply to Need some character class examples

Those will come in handy with regular expressions. You should have perldoc installed on your system, so try: perldoc perlrequick and  perldoc perlretut.
print "Matched!\n" if($user =~ /^aristotle73$/i);
Try reading those first. They'll give you a better idea. HTH.

[marinersk]: Corion This DBA wants to smack others who like putting whitespace in column names.
[marinersk]: s/smack/whap/;
[talexb]: Wow, what hilariously bad form.
[SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
